Is there some advice on the above subject with regards to identifying a lone person in a story?
My initial character is alone for several hundred words. For the reader to connect with the character, they'll need a name. The story is a fantasy novel, so name tags, credit cards, etc can't be used to help reveal a name.
Question - Is this one of the times that "telling" is preferred over "showing"?
Thanks in advance. Carl
